There is one very talented lady who lives in America. Her name is Melissa and she creates beautifull and totally inspiring gradations. I have been asked by a lovely UK based mama to recreate on of them. I hope I fulfilled that task properly and can't wait to hear some... Continue reading

I just looove blue! Probably because my eyes are extreemly blue and it just suits me. For that reason I adore dyeing wraps different shades of this beautifull colour. This hempy wrap is (I think) supposed to be permastash (and I do hope so!). I have used Kobalt Blue, Peacock... Continue reading

I have been wanting to dye a high contrast wrap for a long long time to see if there is any point at all really:). I simply chose Jade Brown as it was available with one of my vendors. It is such a beautiful wrap that it was a shame... Continue reading

Once again I worked on a dye job for "is there anything you would like to try" Lady. I suggested something yellow, orange, red and brown and she loved the idea although sometimes the dye, in the final result, doesn't look as planned. Having used Sunrise Red I received a... Continue reading

Till now I didn't own a gradation dyed wrap (for more than 3 weeks I think:)). I am really hoping this time will be different as I have created a truly girly wrap for myself and Lena. What is more, Rosalinde offers plenty of support and great wrapping qualities once... Continue reading

Once upon a time (about a month ago:)) a lovely Finnish mama booked a gradation slot with me and went straight to designing her perfect wrap. She came up with this lovely combination: I have decided to go for the first option as it is closer to my heart, used... Continue reading

This gradation is partially a result of a dyeing accident but I think it was a good "mishap". Not going into details, this nino was dyed with Avocado Green,Soft Orange and Sunrise Yellow from Dharma. I have also managed to take not so good, hand taken action shot:) Continue reading

The babywearers in the whole world believe in a perfect wrap. For some it is Mr P.,for others rather ugly birds: PFAU. This year didy wanted to make everyone happy and said: "Pfau for everyone". Not all the peacocks have landed yet but, so far, they are finding love in... Continue reading

I have managed to dye a few wraps over the past few weeks but never showed them here and deep in my heart I do believe these fluffies deserve to see the daylight. There was a Zara White for a very sweet Malasyan mama who waited very very long for... Continue reading

There is a lovely lady out there who quite likes my dye jobs. The lady must know that I just love dyeing for her. When we were discussing her first wrap to be dyed she just asked:"is there anything you would like to try out"? I think this is one... Continue reading

Most people call new 55% linen Didymos weave a beast. Very stiff wrap and kind of unpleasant to touch. There is a little "but" which makes a huge difference. Once wrapped it is extreemly supportive for bigger kids. But again, it is not verry pretty. I have decided to make... Continue reading

When I was dyeing this wrap last night I couldn't stop thinking about the picture I have once taken. It was a beautiful winter in our Polish mountains, the sky was perfectly blue and the snow was perfectly white. Oh how I miss those winters! Gradation dye is done on... Continue reading

I am back on track after some holidays. As I didn't want to risk ruining someone's wrap I chose to make a gradation on a chiara which was waiting for its turn. I was hoping for an energetic bomb and so I got one. Fruity gradation has been created with... Continue reading

These two are definitely my favourite colours so I never get boredwith dyeing wraps with different shades of blue and green. The first wrap that landed in mmagic pot" was a natty linen indio from a lovely, gradation addicted mama:) I have called it a Corfu gradation, it reminds me... Continue reading

This beautiful pfau wrap was dued olive and then stripped. For me, it was killing such a great wrap. I did my best to improve its appearance by dyeing it purple to turquoise with Jacquard Procion Dyes. a pfau swan:) Continue reading

Some of you may already know me as a crafty person. I used to make handbags which was a lot of fun but I got to the point when I couldn't even look at the sewing mashine (not mentioning using it) so I said:enough! There was nothing in my mind... Continue reading
